This Week I Traveled to the Brainerd International Raceway. I did this to see a Kiss Tribute band Called Kissology. As it turns out, they where playing the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals. Apparently it's a pretty big event in the drag racing world. There was a sea of winnebago's and army of golf carts and mini bikes, I have never seen that many people in that small a space with that many Golf carts. But the vibe was good, the people where friendly. I assume the races where, fun I never got the to the track.
I've known Jeff Decker since high school. We used to play guitar in his basement. Jeff already had the tongue to be in Kiss be he also has the love of the band. Jeff is a walking encyclopdia of Kiss Knowledge and the name of his tribute
band "Kissology" reflects his Scholarly knowledge on the subject.The Band Constists of (Almost) Ace Frehley - Richard Schultz
(Practically) Paul Stanley - Scott Chandler
(Pretty Much) Peter Criss- Brian Chandler
& (Just About) Gene Simmons - Jeff Decker
I also talk with the Bands Merchandise Manager Destroy Gene, AKA Greg Trimm. Greg is also a Gene impersonator and huge fan.
Kissoloyg Sound like them, they look like them and Rock like them.
I chat a little with the opening acts, Kick Starts
bass player Ben Kervin.
The show was a lot of fun by the way. Ok, enjoy.
